The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies.

Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Bunecombs to arrive on North American shores: William Bunchcombe who arrived in Virginia in 1663.
